I finished this elderberry cluster yesterday, sitting in a mountain meadow at about 7,000 feet, and actually had to put a sweater on because it got so chilly. I could smell winter in the air. White prismacolor pencil was used over the indigo blue berries to depict the sort of haze these berries have (same as grapes). The leaves were done with negative painting, that is I did a layer of light green and then painted around each vein. By this time of year there is very little intact foliage anymore. Most of it has been chewed on by bugs or damaged by weather.
